Clavius & Tycho - 25th Nov 2009

Lucam Recorder test with SKYnyx 2-0M

Thought I'd try some different settings on the s/w that I use to control my SKYnyx 2-0M.
See the results below.
As you can see high gain and low exposure seem to offer the best image detail.

Not a very scientific test. I took around 1000 frames and processed each in Registax to the same wavelets. With a single 128 align box in the centre of the crater.

Basic rule now - whoop the gain up.
